“This is my son’s first year at Y.A.L.E. School. We, as a family were nervous, the fear of the unknown was terrifying.  I can say with all certainty that we made the right decision sending him here. He is treated and cared for as an individual and not a number. The level of education is exactly what we were looking for. While my son has his issues, intelligence is not one of them. Luckily, we found an educational environment that challenges him, yet helps him with his everyday difficulties. I thank God every day for the commitment of his teachers and the team that surrounds them. They are truly making a difference in my son’s life.”

“I am very happy with my choice to send my son to Y.A.L.E. School in Northfield. There is constant interaction with the school staff about how to help my child be more successful, and if something doesn’t work, they try something else. The school provides an environment his old school district could never provide. His current teacher has a great personality, patience, and sense of humor!”

“I could not be happier about my grandson’s teacher, he just loves her.”

“My 12 year old is on his third year at Y.A.L.E. We have experienced three teachers and three classrooms and in those three years there has not been one occasion in which I was not pleased with his care at this school. If a problem or issue arises the fully competent staff address the situation or problem in the kindest and most compassionate way.  I can not say enough about the staff and their continued effort to help my child succeed.”

“My grandson has flourished at Y.A.L.E.! There are times when he gets upset but I feel especially this last year that his emotional needs have been met. He is growing into a positive young man and besides the home upbringing, rules and respect that he is expected to live up to, I truly feel the staff at Y.A.L.E. are definitely under appreciated for what they do for and with our children to help mold them into responsible citizens. Kudos to the Y.A.L.E. staff, all of whom are important — some who shine a little brighter for the extra effort. Thank you for allowing your kindness and teaching skills to touch not only my son’s life but our family’s as well.”

“Y.A.L.E School has been a great thing for my family. Once my son was out of his old school it was a major improvement. I also like his current teacher, she has taken the time to really understand my son and to see where I am coming from. Thank you Y.A.L.E School.”

“I coordinate externship experiences for undergraduate students, and the Y.A.L.E. School Northfield program has been extremely rewarding. With each semester that students have completed externships at Y.A.L.E., the feedback is always positive. Students comment on how supportive and nurturing the staff is to Y.A.L.E. students. The Stockton University students have enriching experiences working with children with autism and related disorders.”

“I could not have asked for a better school to have my son succeed. I have seen a large change in Jadah since he became a student at Y.A.L.E.. I could not ask for a better team to work with Jadah at difficult times. Before attending Y.A.L.E., he didn’t want to go to school, but now I can’t get him to stay home. I am a proud parent of a student who attends Y.A.L.E. Northfield campus!”

“My son has Asperger’s and started at the Northfield campus in 4th grade. When he started at Y.A.L.E., he was a scared little kid, but now he will be beginning his senior year as a well-mannered, well-rounded, upstanding, intelligent young man. Being at Y.A.L.E. has taught him how to believe in himself and never give up on dreams. He plans to attend Stockton University in conjunction with Rowan University and Cooper Medical School to pursue an accelerated program to become a neurologist. The entire teaching staff have always had his best interests in mind and have done everything they can to help him grow and succeed in school and in life. Thank you to the fine staff in Northfield—we could not have done it without all of you.”

“My child was oppositional and defiant to authority, but the Y.A.L.E. School has taught him that every action has a reaction. The school has helped him learn to be accountable for his actions. From the beginning of the school year until present, he has progressed academically. He is maturing and becoming productively responsible. Thank you, all.”

“When Y.A.L.E. School was suggested for my son, I felt like he was being thrown away. His last school placement could never accommodate his needs and I was left with a 7 year old who couldn’t read and barely completed even one assignment a day. My sweet child was frustrated and felt like a failure.  His last school placement was sending him home almost every day as they could not accommodate his needs. It was a constant battle to get them to help our child.

Sending him to Y.A.L.E. has turned out to be the best decision we ever made. My son who just turned 10 is now reading, completes all his assignments, and even his homework. He has no behavior issues at all. He has just blossomed. He feels successful, and smart, and confident. He even has friends. He loves his teachers and hates missing a day. We cannot thanks his teachers and Y.A.L.E. school enough for what they have done for him.”

“My son has progressed with Y.A.L.E. School’s help. His grades have improved due to the help of his teacher. Y.A.L.E. allows him to focus on his academics and deal with his behavior. Thank you to the staff for all of their help with my son’s progress with his education and for helping him to deal with life on ‘Life’s Terms’.”

“My 14-year-old started struggling in school in fifth grade when he was put on many different medicines. He has had a roller coaster of moods and issues since. His old school was not understanding or helpful. Then he started Y.A.L.E. in eighth grade and it has been great! The staff is wonderful and go above and beyond to help my son stay in school and be successful. They keep me informed of how he is doing at all times and are very patient and understanding. He really likes everyone there and will continue at Y.A.L.E. through high school.”

“As a family, we feel blessed to have our 9-year-old attend Y.A.L.E. School. It has been such a pleasure. He is much calmer when “homework” time comes—the difference is beyond words. We never truly knew the role that special education could play in his success. Your finely-tailored program addresses his needs and then some. At times, he still needs redirection and those behaviors are met by the Y.A.L.E. School staff with encouragement and positive support. Also, your website offers tons of helpful suggestions for parents’ at-home use. Thank you for being a part of our lives.”
